Champion! Leverone locks up SM crown in big NJMP weekend

You can race a long time, and damn well, without ever being crowned a champion. That goes double when you’re running in the brutally competitive Spec Miata class. So we’re extra proud of the boss, Nick Leverone, who just clinched the title of Northeast Conference U.S. Majors Champion for 2019 in SM.

The racing at New Jersey Motorsports Park was hot in more ways than one, with temps touching 100. Eric Thompson, new (and fast!) renter Mark Donato, and Dave Kuchrawy also drove extremely well. Eric won Saturday’s STL race, while Mark took that class on Sunday – with Eric taking the Sunday checkers in STU! Meanwhile, Leverone also won both of the weekend’s T4 races, setting a track record in the process. Just a great, great weekend all around – kudos to all.

L to R: On Sunday, Mark Donato, Nick Leverone and Eric Thompson all won their classes during the same run group. Good stuff!
